Beryl wiped her tears with her hands. “Who are you talking about?”
When Conrad looked into his mother’s anxious eyes, Conrad directly said, “The staff from the previous generation of the company. You’re no longer allowed to see them and their family!”
Beryl glared at him with wide eyes and a red face. The only reason that she didn’t fall was because she was supporting herself with the wall.
Darn Fia Lawson! She told him everything!
That whore broke her words!
Recently, she was already planning to keep her head down. And seeing that she already had her grandson, she was going to ignore Esme and really treat Fia as her daughter–in–law!
And yet she went back on her word!
“Fia didn’t tell me anything. I knew about your interactions with them a long time ago! Do you think I didn’t know that you bought the shares from Mr. Smith last month? I simply ask you openly because you’re my
“Conrad, don’t misunderstand my intentions! I’m simply planning for the future! When I die, the shares will naturally go to you.”
“What you do will only make everyone second guess each other in the company! There’s nothing good. about it for me or the company!” Conrad took a deep breath and revealed to her what he already knew. And don’t tell me that you’re doing this for me, because you’re doing it for yourself!”
Beryl gulped. “Conrad, I’ve never meddled in your affairs, but I realize that you’re very tired lately. All I want is to help you.”
“Who’s the one that gave you the idea?” Conrad looked at her aggressively. “Esme Manning?”
“Don’t interact with Esme Manning anymore. If I find out that you met up with any of them, I’ll freeze your
Conrad finally understood why his grandpa refused to set up an individual account for his mother. It was not because he looked down on her, but it was because he couldn’t allow such a time bomb to tick.
Her parents never had love when they got married. His grandpa had considered too many things for him.
In the past, before he grew up, his grandpa controlled all his mom’s expenses. Now, it was his turn to do it.
“Conrad!” Beryl roared out angrily. “I’m your mom! How can you treat me like this!”
“As long as you don’t plan on doing anything, you won’t lack anything.” Conrad entered the ward and closed the door. He didn’t have any intention of letting her see Fia.
In the ward, Fia was had her back against the headboard while Mrs. Taylor was preparing her lunch for her.
Fia looked at Conrad, who was standing by the door. “Ask him to eat with me.”
It was hard for her to even pretend she didn’t hear what he said to his mother.
She… felt sorry for him.
He had to learn how to manage the company as soon as he became of age. He had to watch out for this, watch out for that, and in the end, he even had to watch out for his own mother.
“Master Maxwell, the madam asked you to eat with her,” Mrs. Taylor said. She had watched Conrad since. he was a child. She also felt sorry for him, seeing how dark the expression on his face was.
“I’ll go wash my hands. Eat first.” Conrad gave Fia a glance before turning to the washroom.
Mrs. Taylor prepared a bowl of chicken soup for Fia and said, “Have some soup while you wait for him, madam.”
Fia had already finished a bowl of soup, but Conrad was still inside.
She suddenly remembered the time when he fainted in the bedroom, and she began to feel nervous.
“Mrs. Taylor, can you take a look at what he’s doing? The food is turning cold.”
“Sure.” Mrs. Taylor went over and knocked at the washroom’s door. “Master Maxwell?”
Inside the washroom.
Conrad looked at his reflection in the mirror with hatred, half–wet.
He threw a punch and there was a clang. The mirror cracked into several pieces.
“Master? What’s going on?!” Mrs. Taylor screamed in shock when she heard the noise from inside.
Fia was getting worried and wanted to get out of bed.
Just then, the washroom door opened, and Conrad walked out with a smile as if nothing had happened.
“It’s fine. It took longer than expected.”
Fia and Mrs. Taylor looked at his wet shirt and hair.
Conrad pulled off his shirt and said, “I accidentally got myself wet when I was washing my face.”
“Mrs. Taylors, his clothes are inside the cabinet. Please give him some fresh clothes.”
“Okay!” Mrs. Taylor found his clothes and took out a towel. “Master Maxwell, please get changed immediately and dry your hair. Otherwise, you’ll catch a cold.”
